I was just now trying to get into the massive thread, and realized how, beyond just a few types of examples, a focus on things that are enormous actually dismays me in a world of shrinking resources.

So I'm starting a thread for tiny things. Not limited to actually tiny to us, but relatively tiny! What's the tiniest moon in our solar system? What's the world's smallest car? Tiny houses are dear to my heart - mine is currently being built.

Well, it might be good for a page or two of tiny things.

I'm going to start it off with very small things made on a 3D printer.

Hedy: There's an old saying among academics who are desperate for tenure at the University when all the tenured positions are filled:

Where there's death, there's hope!

So, on the one hand, there's the, "Publish or perish!", squeeze. And on the other hand, there's tenure. The professorial squeeze. And that sums it up for the sweet and lofty life in the ivory tower.

Awesome, Awesom guys...I love that dollhouse, I had a dollhouse growing up, but it was nothing like Queen Mary's.....thanks DragOnspeaker...it brought back nice memories.

Blodybeef, pitulush, and March Hare, beautiful graphics....alas, Shulamit, you are so right, so all I can say is "Publish pix on TFD or Perish!"....and I don't plan on perishing just yet!

Welcome aboard Fairyhouse 7, and I love TFD too! Dancing

Lorraine Loots, and her miniature paintings. She vowed to paint one miniature painting a day for 365 consecutive days. They are marvellous! I wish I had a dozen of them. Applause

Great photos! Again, thanks for helping me with the new thread.

Oh, and I'd love a few of the Queen's books, as well. Dancing

The Boat Carved from an Olive Stone (Chinese: 雕橄欖核舟) is a fruit pit carving of a boat made out of an olive pit. It is part of the collection of the National Palace Museum in Taipei, Taiwan.

The boat is a miniature carving of an olive pit, measuring only 1.4 by 3.4 centimetres (0.55 by 1.34 in) and is only 1.6 centimetres (0.63 in) tall. Inside the boat, there are a total of eight figures, with the Song Dynasty poet Su Tung-po sitting beside the window at the table. The sculpture features incredibly detailed carvings of windows on the side, with the center two panels movable. On top of the boat is a rolled up sail in rope.

The full text of Su Tung-po's Latter Ode on the Red Cliff of more than 300 characters is engraved in details on the bottom of the boat, demonstrating the expert craftsmanship of the artist. The poem depicts the poet enjoying a boat ride with his friends on a full moon night at the site of Battle of Red Cliffs. The artist, Chen, recreated a miniature moment, with the boat being a symbol of seclusion holding men safely on top of life and water.

Year: 1737
